Need to compile it first, but yes no problem

It works, is very small but sadly Fake86 - the emulator i based on got some emulation problems that give sometimes gfx glitches and replay missbehavior, my hope is that the successor Xtulator will fix these: issue with comparison video: https://github.com/mikechambers84/XTulator/issues/4#issuecomment-659561467

llm

here it is: x86 Build with VS2017 under Win7 - could need some vcredist (https://support.microsoft.com/de-de/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads)

just copy into your stunts folder

Wow, thanks.
I didn't expect it so quickly  8)

Edit:
needed some vcredist indeed.
Runs fine in the beginning.. Love how nicely it starts. But after 46 seconds racing it freezes en crashes to desktop...  :-\
(may be a W10 issue?)

but i love it. I'm dyslectic and dropt DOS like a brick when windows 1.1 came available to me when i was 10 or so.
Have grown up with windows, so i tent to shy away form command line interfaces for regular use.

(can't get a grip on linux, i keep breaking it)

EDIT 2:
in compatibility mode i could finish the race but CTD in evaluation menu...

Both times about 1:30 minutes after start of the game...

just tested 2 times. not enough data for meaningful results...
To hot up here now. wil test later.  still love it  8)

i will prepare a XTulator (successor of my emulator base) test-image for you would be nice if you would do some testing

I would love to.
(Maybe time for a new topic? As we are a bit of topic  ???)

Report if you find other errors :)

Daniel3D

Visualy the same glitches as in the previous.
It seems like the rendering of the clouds has the glitch.
The most irritating is the sound. I don't mind the pc speaker sound. But the engine sound while driving is useless.  8)
If you can find a solution for that it's a great bonus.

But I've only done an indy quick lap on default. No other menu touched.

Do you have a document of know issues?

Its not my code, i used the previous version of this emulator for my stuntsvm, that removes the need for a bios,hd-image and dos (im emulating that enough for stunts to work) i hope the xtulator author will fix the still occuring bugs so i can switch my stuntsvm to the xtulator backend: https://github.com/mikechambers84/XTulator, report bugs at github or here

Daniel3D

Ok,
been tinkering a bit myself.
replaced game_pc with game_ad.exe and the sound is working fine now.
also no glitches if clouds are turned off..

speed of the emulation is good to. same as dosbox.

is there a way to scale the window??

Xtulator is still in a early stage, sound is not working very good

Scaling is a missing feature

What glichtes are gone if clouds turned off?
Use the captura tool in former post to make simple videos and post them here
Link to the capture tool and free video uploading site is in the xtulator issue for stunts

I have no problems with sound so far. Maybe that is hardware dependent.

Th glitch i der is with the rendering of one type of clouds. The lowest one, the gray shadow is extended to the right side until the screen edge.

Other than that, scaling and mouse locked in but not appearing I have no issues so far.

It's nice to be able to start stunts from my start menu.  8) hehehe.

Additional:: I'll see if that capture thingie works tomorrow.

Sound is completely emulated in software its implementation is just not finished

Would be great to have some descent issue descriptions with small videos

QuoteFreeDOS 1.3 Arrives, First Major Update Since 2016
By Mark Tyson published 5 days ago

Key new features include a bootable live-image CD, and Zip (de)compression as standard.
Bootable USB should be easy now. I hope sound support is good also. I have a mini laptop waiting for a third life..
